How to take the good picture?

With development of all around and very in high gear such pleasant thing as the digital camera, and together with it and an opportunity to stop time, to imprint the most pleasant moments of our life also rushed into our life.

However each of us wants that it was made beautifully and, whenever possible, qualitatively, but, unfortunately, not at all it turns out. What to do? How to learn to take the picture which will be really pleasing to the eye, but not to cause desire to immediately remove a photo? Everything is very simple.

1. Photograph as much as possible. Always and everywhere. In any business of the practician it is important and skills are lost quickly enough. So you should not leave at home the camera and to get it only at parties and during holiday. Photograph all that beautiful that you see around. This advice will be given even by any professional photographer, and first of all. The more you photograph, the more understand how to do it more better (naturally, on the udacha and mistakes).

2. Hold your horses! Try not to press the descent button absolutely thoughtlessly. Every time when you see that the interesting shot can turn out, stop and think. Perhaps it is worth taking the picture a little from other place to achieve more beautiful background or more correct statement of a shot. Do not forget that the photo is a same picture. Try to imagine the most successful option of a picture and to make it from the correct point.

3. Try to understand. the Photo is art too. Before making a picture, listen to yourself. What emotions in you are caused with what you see now? Before photographing, achieve such statement of a shot to transfer the impression of that picture which you see. Proceeding from this principle, it is possible to understand easily why the photos of the same place / subject / person made by different photographers look absolutely differently and cause different emotions.

4. Repetition - mother of the doctrine. the Best way to learn to do something - at first to repeat the same that was made by more professional person. If you like any photo, try to repeat it, to understand from what point and how it was made. For this purpose it is not obligatory to visit everything photo exhibitions and to buy up all magazines according to the photo (though if you strive for professionalism, then it would be quite good). Every day the printed materials fall into our hands. Having seen an interesting professional picture, try to repeat it. And if it does not turn out (we do not take offense, but most likely, and will be) to analyse, in what your mistake.

5. The photo has to be materialized. It means that photos need to be printed. And the more there will be a format of the printed-out photo, the better. The matter is that in the picture which is unpacked in a big format all errors and defects are most of all visible. So you will be able to estimate more precisely that it is made incorrectly where you were mistaken. Plus to that, the unpacked picture often it is simpler to show to friends and acquaintances. They will be able " too; new view to estimate your creation and to point to mistakes.

6. You are published . Participate in competitions and exhibitions. You should not hide the creativity, try the forces in all possible options. So you will be able to understand what you are capable in comparison with others of. You see that you fall short? Means it is necessary to work on itself more. Of course, on - the first it is difficult and terrible. At times there passes a lot of time until the person decides to show to society the first photo. But it is worth doing it, unambiguously. In the competition there are a lot of pluses, it gives rise to aspiration to improvement.

7. Look for criticism . But it is worth doing it intelligently. Showing pictures obviously yet not professional any to meter you, most likely, will not hear really practical advice because them, at least, at this stage will be too much. Everything that the professional will be able to tell about really amateur pictures, it something it seems not bad or well for a start . Look for people of yours and slightly higher than the level. Be improved gradually, there is no all and at once. But also do not forget that only the one who perceives it really as art really will be able to estimate your work.

8. Last council. Be not fond of what is not necessary for you yet . It concerns the equipment bought by you. Very many beginning photographers get stuck that begin to buy up everything, from fashionable lenses and filters to nearly studio equipment and forget the most important - to photograph. Learn to squeeze out for a start of what you have, all to the maximum, and only when thoroughly study and you will understand the available equipment, you will understand that still it is necessary for you.

And once again remove, remove and remove. Always and everywhere. Also let at you everything turns out! Successful experiments!
